What others are saying:
Geoff Calhoun, Athens, GA
“Emory Jones, you have written a true southern classic! I did not want to put it down! Hours after finishing, my emotions were still reeling from your powerful narrative! I can't remember the last time a story moved me so deeply. Thank you so much for giving us this masterpiece!”
Caroline Crittenden, Sautee Valley, GA
“Emory has captured Northeast Georgia’s cultural diversity and dialects in a compelling story, with eerily familiar characters.”
Linda Jordon, Clarkesville, GA
“The story captured me completely. This book is certain to be a classic.”
Betty Highsmith, Cleveland, GA
“Emory wanted me to read to check historical facts. But, I was so engrossed in the story that I forgot about my original task. Many White County names are woven into the story. Emory certainly did a lot of research, but mainly he has a story that kept me interested.”
Cindy Mullinax, Office manager of the White County News
“Reading The Valley Where They Danced was such a joy. I was taken back in time and felt as if I was there, as a member of that community. The characters came to life for me, and I could see the events unfold as they happened. I felt their happiness and sadness.”
Garrison Baker, Probate judge of White County
“Emory’s gift as a teller of tales – well–known to those who know him – is on full display as he takes the reader back in time to White County’s beloved Nacoochee and Sautee valleys. The book provides an accurate, detailed look at what life must have been like during this period. Emory’s careful and meticulous research is evident. But much more than that, it’s a great read.”
Sue Mascarello, Santa Rosa Beach, FL
“You know you just finished a wonderful book if it made you laugh, cry (a few times) and you were disappointed when there were no more pages to turn. Thank you Emory for the wonderfully written book!”
Ellen Schlossberg, Owner of the Mt. Yonah Book Exchange
“This is a wonderful crowd pleaser of a book. It is appropriate for ages 13 to 113. The book is historically accurate in every respect, and tells an excellent story, set right here, in the beautiful Sautee Valley. It has it all – suspense, a love story, and a bad guy or two. I expect that it is also going to make one heck of a great movie one day.”

The Valley Where They Danced
"This carefully researched work of historical fiction is the timeless love story of
Dr. Tom Garrison, recently moved from Macon to the Sautee Valley, and the lovely
Lenore Conley. The story is set in the rural Georgia foothills just after World War I,
as Helen was becoming a rowdy sawmill town and power companies were building
dams on the mighty Tallulah River to provide electricity for Atlanta. From Clarkesville
to Clayton to Cleveland, old-time campmeeting and pottery shops, go back to a time
that surely existed here once. It all sets the stage for a twist of an ending at Tallulah Gorge."
